Elazar is a beautiful three year old boy who is very, very sick. He’s connected to way too many machines. He has a feeding tube and a breathing tube, so he can’t even speak. But when I read books to him, his eyes light up. He smiles. He points at his favorite colors. He wishes he could communicate with words, but he can’t. Illness is impairing his basic human functions.

Elazar was born into a loving family, with no inkling of what was to come. His parents are incredibly special people. They radiate strength and serenity, somehow. When I visit Elazar in the hospital, I receive way more than I give.

To say it’s extremely difficult for his parents is the understatement of the century. You see, this beautiful three year old boy has a twin brother. A brother who is healthy and happy, thank God. And every time his parents see him, they’re reminded over and over again of how their other precious son would have been had he not gotten sick.

Chai Lifeline spares no expense in trying to alleviate some of the burden these families have, whether it’s physical, emotional, or financial, all for free. I have seen firsthand the unbelievable impact they have on families dealing with pediatric illness.

I met Elazar and his family as a Chai Lifeline volunteer, and he means so much to me.

This November, I will be running in the Vegas Marathon for Elazar. Every single dollar donated goes directly towards Chai Lifeline, enabling them to continue the amazing work they do. In the merit of your generous support, may Elazar Rafael ben Esther have a complete and speedy recovery.

Thank you,
Elisheva
